I don't know where you could find a shutoff screw without buying the
whole valve.

There's a rivet/pin in the valve that is suppose to stop the screw
from backing out all the way. I'm not sure why yours fell out, maybe
the rivet is missing or didn't stick in far enough.

The reason the valve is usually removed to replace the shutoff screw
is so you can drill out the stop rivet and tap the hole so you can
replace the rivet with a machine screw.

If you search the archives you should find detailed instructions on
replacing the o-ring(s) (can't remember if there's one or two).

Thanks Andy,
That explains why I couldn't find that single component for sale, why it probably fell out in the first place, and why it requires the entire shutoff assembly to be pulled off. Thanks for taking the time to educate me! I'll order one right now.

Do yourself a favor and get a short 7/16 fine thread bolt and screw it in there tight. Then put yourself an inline shutoff down by the carb.
Problem solved plus you don't risk leaking gas on a hot engine.

The thread size on fuel lines is a special one. It is 7/16-24 UNS; not a standard 7/16-20 UNF one.
